Should I buy Halo 3 or Gears of War 2?


I just got an XBox 360 for Xmas and I’m really happy but I am thinking about getting a shooter, so i have a dilemma. I think Halo 3 is really cool, but all my friends with 360’s already have gotten tired of it and do not play it anymore. I also think Gears of War 2 would be fun, but I don’t know if I should get that instead of Halo 3. I realize its a newer game, but i don’t know. I have xbox live gold, so I am also looking at the online content. I am not a big fan of forge or something like that, so that wouldn’t really change the likelihood of me buying either game.

  1. In all honesty both of these games do not compare to the new COD:World at War. It may be WW2, but trust me it’s frikin awesome. It recently took the #1 spot on X-Box Live and still is to this day(250,000 + every day and it keeps increasing).

    Just borrow Halo 3 from your friend or something. It’s not worth it. GOW 2 is cooler and funner if you’re around 16+ years old. Hope I helped.

  2. It depends on what you like to play. I think halo is a more “kiddie” game but i do play both and i really enjoy gears of war more. So it all depends on you.

  3. gears of war that game is raw and its more realistic and since your friends dont play halo 3 anymore ask to borrow it but the new call of duty world of war is really fun and it is really online like you want i would choose call of duty over any shooting game because the call of dutys have a awsome online since thats what you want gears of was to is a little bad on the graphics for a 360 and the halo 3 gets boring after like a week but also in your case you could just borrow it ya know

  4. Hey man, I see your problem. I say Halo 3. If you are going to have Xbox Live then Halo 3 is the way to go. And yes usually after the Holiday season you begin to see a new wave of noobs, which usually gets annoying. Both Gears of War 2 and Halo 3 have amazing Stories, but Halo has the multiplayer down. I have had Halo 3 since the first day and the online is always exciting. Just make sure you have some friends on live! 😀 Feel free to add me so I can help you out!

  5. halo 3 is a better online game with a larger population of players while gears of war is not as good and the controlls are weird.if you fun online, then buy halo 3, if you want campaign and stuff ofline, then buy gears

  6. Halo 3 is funner Multiplayer and online but, gow 2 has a better storyline. I would prefer halo 3.

  7. Halo 3 will never die. There are going to be people playing it for decades. People still play Halo 2 online.

    I wouldn’t get Halo 3, get GoW2.

    Better story, plus the online for it might only be popular for a few more years so enjoy it while you can.

  8. It depends, Halo 3 has map-making, but Gears of War 2 is more violent. It all depends on what you want.
